Descrizione articolo


This full-colour book/pocket guide aims to be the beginner's guide and photographic reference to the fascinating, but little understood, world of spiders in New Zealand. Introductory material - including information on specific anatomical make-up, web construction, life cycles, how given species are classified - and more general information is provided, as well as specific entries on individual species, each with a close-up photo. Profiles are broken down under two groups: 'Myglomorph' (e.g. tunnelweb and tunnel-dwelling spiders), and 'Araneomorph' (e.g. wolf, white-tailed, water, jumping spiders). Appended is further information on enemies, 'close relatives' and a glossary.
